"Survival" Fishing Shelter
I'm glad this instructable motivated you to try it. Just try to use materials in a wise way, by not damaging the nature too much as it's becoming more and more precious nowadays. In theory this hook should be quite efficient. I must admit, I haven't really tried it as I wanted only to test the mechanism. You can make different types of hooks out of barbs, but combining them would not be efficient I think because this hook is big enough and adding barbs to it would make it even more difficult to put the bait on. Plus, the gorge hook is intended to rotate when the fish bites so I can't see how adding barbs would help.
Simple Tesla Coil
You're right mate. It was the first time I made chordage from tree bark so I wasn't sure exactly how much I would need. This process surely damages the tree, but I made sure I chose from a spot where a lot of small trees were next to another. They wouldn't have all grown up to be big trees. Preserving nature is one of my big concerns too, but try to see it as bonding with the nature, getting back to the roots, as you take no more than you need. Nature is destroyed by industrialization. These small projects really make me apprecuate nature even more. But, as I said, the same process can be done with inner bark from a dead tree as well. The only difference is that you have to get it wet. Thank you for writing, it makes me happy to see more and more people care about nature.

EMERGENCY PHONE CHARGING HACK
Uuuu, lookin forward to see some pics! Just make sure you secure the logs very good with paracord or thick rope! Safety first!
Yeah, I know what you mean. Even though thare were bears in the area and we could hear them around at night, none of them got closer because they could smell us. Plus we took the food far from the camp...I guess we didn't smell that good if it kept the bears away :)))
Thanx :D I'm glad you like it!
Indeed, if you know you roll in your sleep, it's better to add some 30 cm side walls made out of sticks. Other than that, the platform was quite strong...one of my friends tested it by jumping on it and it was ok :)
